I’m so glad I cleared time in my schedule to take the Government Internship course. From both a networking and experience standpoint, venturing outside of the law school to get my first chance of applying the legal knowledge I gleaned from my 1L year proved to be an incredibly rewarding experience. At the Travis County Mental Health Defender, I was fortunate to receive individualized mentorship and advice from experienced attorneys regarding my legal career trajectory. Because each student interned at a different governmental agency, our class discussions proved to be especially enriching due to the diversity of experiences available at each agency. I looked forward to it every week!
